In this episode we will be talking to Leslie Kern, associate Professor of Geography and Environment at Mount Allison University, on her latest book Feminist City, Claiming Space in a Man-made World. In the book Kern offers a way of understanding how gender bias and sexism functions in the built environment, and how this environment has been set up to support and facilitate traditional gender roles, and with men’s experiences as the norm. In this interview we will explore how this manifests itself on our streets, in our public spaces, and in our transit systems. And we will talk about the urban strategies we have to transform this city. From a city of men, into a city for everyone.
